Certain people to continue to make money out of either incoming or outgoing transfers without the 'prying eyes' of a new manager.
Just leave the club now Venkys - there is no excuse not to be able to make a decision on a new manager within 2 weeks. Unless you are trying to hide something.

Another priceless decision by Venkys and Shebby. Appoint a manager when its too late for him to bring in his own signings.

Could it be as a result of a total lack of applicants now that Peter Taylor has worked out that he will lose his tax-free earnings from Bahrain.

So. What happened to the man who was to be appointed on New Years Day?If Venkys had no confidence in Shabbys pick for then, that would be the second time he's ballsed up that particular task. How many chances does the guy get?.......hope not as many as they gave Kean!

Doomongers on here at lighning speed complete with burning effigies and torches looking for something else to burn. Can anyone calm this angry mob of nutters.

Great idea, common sense is prevailing, its about time too, I'm sure they will do a sterling job and thanks for pulling us out of the muck left behind by others.
I'm sure if there are any shortfalls in the playing staff, they will be highlighted and dealt with during the window.
Thanks Gary and Terry.

Is anybody really surprised?

Well after this fantastic news I'll go and buy three, well maybe four, perhaps five, sod it lets round it up to ten season tickets, for the next ten years, all paid in advance. Such is my confidence in the management.

This is more believable than anything that comes from Singh or anybody at the club these days.....

Doomongers? I think its more without a manager who is going to make transfer decisions unless of course were not already finished buying players??? Bowyer wont get a look it edge ways, Shebby will sign more crap and who would want to come in to a 6 month contract without the ability to buy and sell players...No one!

Venkys have now wasted money paing Berg 3yrs wages for 57 days work, over a million to the incidious Kean and to owners who must squirm at the thought of paying people who are sacked or resign, it must seem enough is enough with spending. We could have bought two lower league players with the money they've paid to Berg and Kean. Wh they should be doing is sacking the the stooges for poor decision making.

Yes, any new manager will be asking how much money to spend, wanting to strengthen the squad. However, Shebby made it clear yesterday that there will be no major transfer activity because the squad is strong enough. Moreover, if MB and his team do well, no need to replace the backroom staff.
Appointing after the transfer window closes means that demand can be kicked into the long grass until the summer. We are not stupid.

You really could not make this up if you tried. Venkys have made a succession of bad decisions for more than 2 years, due to a combination of ineptitude and greed within the club. What happens if we lose our next three games, will they sit it out, stubbornly awaiting for the 1 February, so that they can then appoint someone who will have no say on the playing staff situation until the summer?

Clearly the owners are intent on stripping out everything that they can get their greedy hand on. The only way to force them out is to cut off their income supply, by stop going to Ewood Park. All those people who continue to put their hard earned cash into the Venkys coffers will continue to endorse and support a regime that has been intent on harming the club from the first day.

Hodgson

Hughes

Big Sam

Kean

Berg


Whoever they get, B****** will be adopting the "we have the god - given right to still be in the Premier League. We hound out whoever doesnt guarantee us Champions League football. Even the current England manager was given the hate, bile and venom we like to dish out!"

"We want our club back" is the cry

Back to the mid-table "Chumpionship" (at best) non-entities with gates of around 8000.

It was predictable......I think Berg was sacked so that they wouldn't need to give him any money for new players, and I thought that at the time given the timing of his sacking. ......He would have probably kicked up a stink so it was cheaper to pay him off. Anyone got any ideas about Venkys AMBITIONS for the club ?

Venkys have made a succession of bad decisions for more than 2 years, due to a combination of ineptitude and greed within the club. What happens if we lose our next three games, will they sit it out, stubbornly awaiting for the 1 February, so that they can then appoint someone who will have no say on the playing staff situation until the summer? Clearly the owners are intent on stripping out everything that they can get their greedy hand on. The only way to force them out is to cut off their income supply, by stop going to Ewood Park. All those people who continue to put their hard earned cash into the Venkys coffers will continue to endorse and support a regime that has been intent on harming the club from the first day.[/p][/quote]It was predictable......I think Berg was sacked so that they wouldn't need to give him any money for new players, and I thought that at the time given the timing of his sacking. ......He would have probably kicked up a stink so it was cheaper to pay him off.

Our club is an unbelievable farce. They just do not have any idea on how to run a club. Every week is full of contradictions… we need a change, we need someone in quickly, we need to get the right appointment and now they won’t make a decision until the end of January! That’s not a 6 month contract its three and a half months! Who in the right mind will work for these idiots? Shebby says he doesn’t interfere in the team and then blocks players from being included in the squad! Bowyer does seem to be doing ok but our recent wins have been against poor opponents, but we will take that. The risk being that if we do not get promotion this year we will be in a financial mess which we may never recover from, adding to this will be the exodus of any decent players we have in the squad, leaving us with a very poor team indeed and would be near impossible to rebuild and recover with the shambles of a setup that Venky’s have implemented. The fans will continue to diminish and stay away unless they start learning their lessons. We have had over two years of pain since they got rid of the quality directors and Big Sam and replaced them with a bunch of clueless idiots. The total lack of organisation within Rovers must be embarrassing to any decent Indian business people, you take good people out and replace them with people who do not know what they are doing, can’t agree among themselves and don’t have a plan. It’s not difficult to resolve, get the boardroom sorted one way or another, define the roles of the staff and stick to them, put in place a popular manager, one that the fans and players want, one with experience who knows how to get the best of the players, know tactically how to setup a team against varying opponents. Venky’s have been destroying this club for too long and the fans have had all the pain. I for one do not think they care.

Common sense prevails.

Those questioning Bowyer and Co need to give their head a shake !

Our club desperately needs stability if not for the long term with this, but the absolute here and now.

Venky have got this right for once advised by, well, let us say results, and are we not in a results based business ?

The astute, proven manager we all crave for is a dead duck in the water for various reasons that are well and truly highlighted on pages such as these.

I wish for nothing more than BRFC performing to a standard that I have become accustomed to, and that being competitive - whether that is a success or failure is open to the 90 minutes of play ?

Bowyer will have his limits just as any manager who comes in would, but Bowyer has grabbed this situation by the scruff of the neck installed the belief and desire for these players to perform to the best of their training abilities resulting in two wins - 6 for 1 against.

This move in retaining Bowyer is one of the better choices made by our bungling owners as I'm sure this will create stability for the foreseeable future which we all crave for - isn't it ?

Far to many folk's have their own agenda over these matters down at the good ship Ewood rather than seeing what is practical, in my estimation ?

I would never question the loyalty or the intrinsic link of any supporter for our beloved, but I would question the wisdom of some ?

Neither do I profess to have the correct solution in my opinion, but at the heart of the matter is seeing something that is worth embracing for the most important element in all of this, and that is the B&W shirt adorned by a crest that supersedes all. I support that in any situation, and these back to back wins are worthy of positive support regardless of the supposed blithe blowing through the corridors of Ewood Park ?

Bowyer as shat in the face of adversity such is his belief in the squad to go out and perform to the level and standard that they have been lauded for since our relegation.

I go into Saturdays game with renewed optimism regardless of the opposition.The plight of the club is there for all to see, but out on the pitch at this time I would say it is worth seeing and supporting under the guy who as appeared to revive some dignity for our beleaguered club and, again I say, shatting in the face of adversity.

Keep on keeping on Mr Bowyer and Co

Common sense as prevailed here whether you loathe Venky and Co or not.

Doomongers? I think its more without a manager who is going to make transfer decisions unless of course were not already finished buying players??? Bowyer wont get a look it edge ways, Shebby will sign more crap and who would want to come in to a 6 month contract without the ability to buy and sell players...No one!
Shebby said last night in his interview that there would be no more signings this January. We apparently have a large squad already and there is no need to bring anyone in.

Forthcoming decisions will not only knock the stuffing out of loyal supporters,but will just confirm that they cannot and will not be able to run a football club on any level.

Obviously planned so that Shebby can deal with the transfer window without interference from a manager. Then if Bowyer continues to win games he can be offered a cheap deal to stay on until the end of the season or he brings in a manager who cannot change the squad due to the transfer window closing.

At the end of the day it doesn't matter if we keep winning and a couple of decent transfers both in and out of the club are made but it is obvious why this option has been chosen.

back to the footy.....111

I think most of us know which players we would like see move on at BRFC.

But who do we want in playing....!!

Ok, I think we should make recomendations to BRFC as we're football fans and we see or hear of players doing well. I'm sure we know a player or two out there in the Football league who in their opinion good be a good player for BRFC.

Lets start pointing out the players in the lower leagues who could be good signings for Rovers.

who is .......Tony McMahon...??

if we need a good young defender who is tough and has ability then maybe you should consider Tony McMahon who is at Sheffield utd but ex Middbrg.

have a look...!!
I think we should go for him
hes a full back, strong, tough and has scored goals

take a look and let us all know

And what happens when Bowyer starts to lose games, what happens when the teams we play are actually competent at playing football? what then, will you still stand by your common sense ideals. Its obvious that when early February comes round we will hire someone and Bowyer through all his rights or wrongs will be one again demoted. If your backing Bowyer then great, nobody wants to say a bad word about him. Dont think for a second that Venkys will treat him with any respect after the end of the transfer window.

I am fine about not employing a manager at the moment as there is no suitable candidates. What interests me is how well/bad Bowyer will do in the next few games. When a new guy comes in to manage a team that has been in poor form there is usually a few games grace where results pick up. After this period is up the team either kicks on, or goes back to losing games. I'm hoping that in our case it is the former. I think automatic promotion has gone, and so has the third, fourth and fifth playoff spots, but that last playoff spot I feel is still within reach and indeed should be the target.

Agreed, although what is happening off the pitch is still way off what is required of such a great club, at least its starting to happen on the pitch.
Maybe we have the squad capable already, only time will tell. At least the good ship ewood has started to plug the leaks, all we need now is to get rid of some water and see where the sails take us.

Great idea, common sense is prevailing, its about time too, I'm sure they will do a sterling job and thanks for pulling us out of the muck left behind by others.
I'm sure if there are any shortfalls in the playing staff, they will be highlighted and dealt with during the window.
Thanks Gary and Terry.
Common sense prevails.

Those questioning Bowyer and Co need to give their head a shake !

Our club desperately needs stability if not for the long term with this, but the absolute here and now.

Venky have got this right for once advised by, well, let us say results, and are we not in a results based business ?

The astute, proven manager we all crave for is a dead duck in the water for various reasons that are well and truly highlighted on pages such as these.

I wish for nothing more than BRFC performing to a standard that I have become accustomed to, and that being competitive - whether that is a success or failure is open to the 90 minutes of play ?

Bowyer will have his limits just as any manager who comes in would, but Bowyer has grabbed this situation by the scruff of the neck installed the belief and desire for these players to perform to the best of their training abilities resulting in two wins - 6 for 1 against.

This move in retaining Bowyer is one of the better choices made by our bungling owners as I'm sure this will create stability for the foreseeable future which we all crave for - isn't it ?

Another months salary on the manager's account saved. Does anyone realise the season ends in May ? Venkys will pay the four months salary from Feb to May - another saving.

I suppose you're right, we have been in decline since 1995. When you win the league then anything less than that represents decline.
Meanwhile the mighty Clarets are sweeping away all before them with Dick Van Dyke at the helm.

The Negative "Team" are busy today...bit worried because we have won a couple. worried that we might start to have some success?
Now that would never do would it...Stop pretending to be Rovers Fans, if you want to slag us off at least have the cojones to do it inder your true colours (Claret n Blue)
Anyway to the odd Real Rovers fan on here I say that Venkys/Singh are getting it right currently but more by accident than design but hell, I will take that over the alternatives...
Clearly GB can and has got the team firing, why HB could not is open to plenty of theories but we are much improved so if it is working why change. There was never going to be any money this window as we have a good enough squad in the main to win this league. One midfield ball winner and a centre half are all we are short of, so maybe the loan system will help there but in all honesty we can do it anyway.
Forest were being touted as dark horese for the top spots then they got AM. Be honest we wiped the floor with them second half. The rest of this league is no better and mainly worse.
Form is our let down more than individual players and now GB is in charge the players are happy.
We have signed King and Best will be back this month (another reason why Venkys would not have spent again as they have had no value out of his fee yet)
Money is not the answer, we do not want to go bust so stop talking like we are rich.. we aint, end of.
Yeah our Dingle friends want us to go bust, hence the snidy boycott mails on here today. Dont fall for that.
Oh and dont bother with the I have been a Rover for 90 years boll-ox either
I can genuinely out shout anyone on that score but it is true(r) in my case
Yep Venkys have finally got it right by default, we need to be saving money for the Summer window if we manage to get back up.
This squad and GB can do it in spite of our silly owners
Only my opinion of course!

Have I missed something here? I thought that last night Singh said there was a 6 month deal for an experienced manager to come in? So if he takes over on 1st Feb then a 6 month deal will take him until August. Of course that makes perfect sense.

I was just about coming round to the idea of a 6 month manager after last night's performance on the radio. Might have been a good idea to keep it short term rather than squander a fortune on another Berg style appointment. Now I've got the feeling that the intention from the word go was to have a 'temporary' arrangement throughout January so that Singh could involve himself in transfer activity without resistance. Peculiar how Berg was ditched before the window opened and a new manager won't be here until it has shut.

A win or two from the next 4 games and it will be Bowyer's job. Cannot believe that the club are suggesting that they take 5 weeks to appoint a manager on a 6 month contract! They must think we are stupid.

Just for a moment at the end of the game against Forest I was happy with things. A comfortable win, good goals, 6 points from 2 games, healthier crowd at Ewood and the chance of bringing in a manager to push us on over the rest of the season. Well done Venky's, you've done it again and spoiled things.

Bit of a difference there though mate, Bowyer has a track record of success at every level he has operated at. whereas when big Sam left and the first team coach went with him, Kean, who was first team cone placer at the time was promoted having no track record of success at any level. He could hand out a mean High Vis bibb and looked awsome at placing the tyres though.
So your comparison really isn't apples and apples its apples and doughnuts.
If Bowyer did lose the next three games it would only speed up the process of finding a new manager, if he wins the next three would you be bothered?

Angry From Accrington says...

So the club has admitted that it does not have sufficient confidence in the judgement of it's executives to allow them to offer a contract of over 6 months. I take this as a positive sign that they are learning their lessons and are aware of their limitations but why is this statement coming from Shebby the Snake? Surely this should be coming from Shaw.
Also I hope they will introduce a six month Season Ticket from the start of next season so the fans can reward success or failure by renewing or walking away! Assuming there are any Season Ticket holders left of course!

Riverside 7 says...

So we will have no proper manager now until the transfer window closes.

Could AC please ask Shebby this question -
who makes the decisons to buy and sell players during January - is it Bowyer, Shebby or will no-one at Ewood have the authority?

If he dosn't answer then please ask the same question to Mesrs Shaw and Agnew.

All 3 were supposedly employed by Venkys to improve communications with the fans.

There are a lot of players that need 'moving on' and if they remain at the club they will continue to have an unsettling effect.

He has done a fantastic job so far but what happens if Bowyer loses a few games?

As usual it is a total shambles.

You couldn't make it up - it's a nightmare.

Common sense prevails.

Those questioning Bowyer and Co need to give their head a shake !

Our club desperately needs stability if not for the long term with this, but the absolute here and now.

Venky have got this right for once advised by, well, let us say results, and are we not in a results based business ?

The astute, proven manager we all crave for is a dead duck in the water for various reasons that are well and truly highlighted on pages such as these.

I wish for nothing more than BRFC performing to a standard that I have become accustomed to, and that being competitive - whether that is a success or failure is open to the 90 minutes of play ?

Bowyer will have his limits just as any manager who comes in would, but Bowyer has grabbed this situation by the scruff of the neck installed the belief and desire for these players to perform to the best of their training abilities resulting in two wins - 6 for 1 against.

This move in retaining Bowyer is one of the better choices made by our bungling owners as I'm sure this will create stability for the foreseeable future which we all crave for - isn't it ?

Far to many folk's have their own agenda over these matters down at the good ship Ewood rather than seeing what is practical, in my estimation ?

I would never question the loyalty or the intrinsic link of any supporter for our beloved, but I would question the wisdom of some ?

Neither do I profess to have the correct solution in my opinion, but at the heart of the matter is seeing something that is worth embracing for the most important element in all of this, and that is the B&W shirt adorned by a crest that supersedes all. I support that in any situation, and these back to back wins are worthy of positive support regardless of the supposed blithe blowing through the corridors of Ewood Park ?

Bowyer as shat in the face of adversity such is his belief in the squad to go out and perform to the level and standard that they have been lauded for since our relegation.

I go into Saturdays game with renewed optimism regardless of the opposition.The plight of the club is there for all to see, but out on the pitch at this time I would say it is worth seeing and supporting under the guy who as appeared to revive some dignity for our beleaguered club and, again I say, shatting in the face of adversity.

Keep on keeping on Mr Bowyer and Co

Common sense as prevailed here whether you loathe Venky and Co or not.

Just a thought folk's ?

Arte et labore
And what happens when Bowyer starts to lose games, what happens when the teams we play are actually competent at playing football? what then, will you still stand by your common sense ideals. Its obvious that when early February comes round we will hire someone and Bowyer through all his rights or wrongs will be one again demoted. If your backing Bowyer then great, nobody wants to say a bad word about him. Dont think for a second that Venkys will treat him with any respect after the end of the transfer window.
When Bowyer begins to lose games, as you put it - then the boo boys will be out in force again. It is facking simple - Why ? Because I know what Blackburn fans can be like seeing as I've followed, lived and breathed this facking place for nigh on 50 years following this club for 40 of them consistently.

I will stand by my comments everyday of the week, and even discuss with one and all over them. I quite clearly state the 'wisdom of some' toward this current situation our club finds itself in nor do I profess to have the answers as most other posters do not either, but what I will say is this - the self perpetuating actions of some of our clubs supporters are doing untold damage to the club. Never mind that Venky and Co are the main culprits in this - allegedly - no other will damage the club more than US the supporter with this continued protest of what is deemed to be best for it ?

We as supporters are never going to have our our way that is a simple fact, and this is highlighted by the 10,000 that have chosen to stay away because they cannot have their own way. Proof enough I would surmise ?

Supporting your club takes balls, belief, dedication regardless of the situation. I didn't here folk bleeting at the Bill Fox era for instance when things were bleak - Why ? Because we knew our station, but always believing.

Venky have made a sows ear out of buying our club and i have vented my spleen often enough, but never have I turned on my club as some supporters are quite clearly doing whether through a conscience state or an ignorance ?

Blackburn Rovers Football Club loses games even under the greatest of managers, Bowyer will be no different the salvation from this is that Bowyer is a winner quite clearly proven up to date, and that is good enough added to a very important stability that could very well put our club back on a level footing for the future that WE all crave. It is about time US Rovers supporters begin the process of thought toward that instead of maligning the club with their own vision for the hatred of Venky.

Their is only one loser in all of this: Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

I won't turn on my club and should I see a glint of light that I see as worth supporting I will do that without booing or venting my spleen at the current situation. Why ? Because I am Blackburn through and through. Bowyer and Co have shown me he understands the situation just as Berg(unfortunately he lost his job) did and shat in the face of adversity just as I will for our club no matter what the circumstances. If we the supporter don't remain loyal shouting from the rooftops that things are improving then we can all go home and let this projected episode become what a lot of supporters believe it is ?

I know Blackburn supporters from the road sweeper to the chattering class in the Walker stand, and we can bemoan like no other regards this football club, but if we want a football club worth supporting then the supporter had better make stark choices and grow some facking balls and cease bleeting at these owners. They will succeed or fail all on their own ?

The bottom line is 'where was you when the shat hit the fan ?

I was out on the terraces supporting the B&W shirt followed by the crest that will be adorned for time infinite, but not if the Venky antagonists have their way.

I know of one person who is making inroads with dialogue towards finding a settlement that besieges our club, and from his previous dealings with the club he came out a winner followed by every single person that walks onto Ewood Park.

I rest my case.

Hopefully whoever is doing it we will get rid of the whingers, whiners and moaners inside the club, especially on the playing staff.

I'm not a lover of Venky's or Shebby, I haven't a clue what Shaw and Agnew are doing.

But the Doomongers (excellent word) are no better, they delight in dragging the club down, I get the distinct impression they would have preferred Rovers to loose the last two matches just to prove themselves right.

"Fans", many of whom don't bother to go anymore wanting the team they used to support to loose, not good is it?

Bowyer and his team are showing that they have something about them, they are not going to do any worse than the previous incumbents, despite Shebby, Venky's, Shaw, Agnew and the Doomongers, so why not give them a chance.

Who knows, we may just win a couple more games.

I go into Saturdays game with renewed optimism regardless of the opposition.The plight of the club is there for all to see, but out on the pitch at this time I would say it is worth seeing and supporting under the guy who as appeared to revive some dignity for our beleaguered club and, again I say, shatting in the face of adversity.

Keep on keeping on Mr Bowyer and Co

Common sense as prevailed here whether you loathe Venky and Co or not.

Just a thought folk's ?

Arte et labore
And what happens when Bowyer starts to lose games, what happens when the teams we play are actually competent at playing football? what then, will you still stand by your common sense ideals. Its obvious that when early February comes round we will hire someone and Bowyer through all his rights or wrongs will be one again demoted. If your backing Bowyer then great, nobody wants to say a bad word about him. Dont think for a second that Venkys will treat him with any respect after the end of the transfer window.
When Bowyer begins to lose games, as you put it - then the boo boys will be out in force again. It is facking simple - Why ? Because I know what Blackburn fans can be like seeing as I've followed, lived and breathed this facking place for nigh on 50 years following this club for 40 of them consistently.

I will stand by my comments everyday of the week, and even discuss with one and all over them. I quite clearly state the 'wisdom of some' toward this current situation our club finds itself in nor do I profess to have the answers as most other posters do not either, but what I will say is this - the self perpetuating actions of some of our clubs supporters are doing untold damage to the club. Never mind that Venky and Co are the main culprits in this - allegedly - no other will damage the club more than US the supporter with this continued protest of what is deemed to be best for it ?

We as supporters are never going to have our our way that is a simple fact, and this is highlighted by the 10,000 that have chosen to stay away because they cannot have their own way. Proof enough I would surmise ?

Supporting your club takes balls, belief, dedication regardless of the situation. I didn't here folk bleeting at the Bill Fox era for instance when things were bleak - Why ? Because we knew our station, but always believing.

Venky have made a sows ear out of buying our club and i have vented my spleen often enough, but never have I turned on my club as some supporters are quite clearly doing whether through a conscience state or an ignorance ?

Blackburn Rovers Football Club loses games even under the greatest of managers, Bowyer will be no different the salvation from this is that Bowyer is a winner quite clearly proven up to date, and that is good enough added to a very important stability that could very well put our club back on a level footing for the future that WE all crave. It is about time US Rovers supporters begin the process of thought toward that instead of maligning the club with their own vision for the hatred of Venky.

Their is only one loser in all of this: Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

I won't turn on my club and should I see a glint of light that I see as worth supporting I will do that without booing or venting my spleen at the current situation. Why ? Because I am Blackburn through and through. Bowyer and Co have shown me he understands the situation just as Berg(unfortunately he lost his job) did and shat in the face of adversity just as I will for our club no matter what the circumstances. If we the supporter don't remain loyal shouting from the rooftops that things are improving then we can all go home and let this projected episode become what a lot of supporters believe it is ?

I know Blackburn supporters from the road sweeper to the chattering class in the Walker stand, and we can bemoan like no other regards this football club, but if we want a football club worth supporting then the supporter had better make stark choices and grow some facking balls and cease bleeting at these owners. They will succeed or fail all on their own ?

The bottom line is 'where was you when the shat hit the fan ?

I was out on the terraces supporting the B&W shirt followed by the crest that will be adorned for time infinite, but not if the Venky antagonists have their way.

I know of one person who is making inroads with dialogue towards finding a settlement that besieges our club, and from his previous dealings with the club he came out a winner followed by every single person that walks onto Ewood Park.

I rest my case.

The PL is the Golden Goose, just by getting promoted and relegated clubs pick up in the region of £50 million plus parachute payments, just for one season.

That would offset any losses.

Venky's, like them or not, and I don't like them one single iota, are not the idiots continually portrayed on here, they are multi millionaires looking to promote and expand their brand.

The only way to do that is in the PL.

How many people who completely deride and insult them on here are self made multi millionaires?

The problem is that Venky's come from a totally different culture and most certainly don't understand our culture any better than we understand theirs.

They don't, or didn't understand our passion for Rovers, that must have come as an incredible shock to them, especially when things started going wrong.

They won't react favourably to the bile and insults because they are not used to being questioned or threatened, so they will withdraw deeper, become even more insular.

But they won't give up because to do so would mean a huge loss of face, something their culture simply will not allow. That is almost certainly why it took so long to get rid of Kean, because he was appointed by them..

They didn't personally appoint Berg so sacking him wasn't a problem.

Know and understand your enemy, it's the only way to beat them.

Those questioning Bowyer and Co need to give their head a shake !

Our club desperately needs stability if not for the long term with this, but the absolute here and now.

Venky have got this right for once advised by, well, let us say results, and are we not in a results based business ?

The astute, proven manager we all crave for is a dead duck in the water for various reasons that are well and truly highlighted on pages such as these.

I wish for nothing more than BRFC performing to a standard that I have become accustomed to, and that being competitive - whether that is a success or failure is open to the 90 minutes of play ?

Bowyer will have his limits just as any manager who comes in would, but Bowyer has grabbed this situation by the scruff of the neck installed the belief and desire for these players to perform to the best of their training abilities resulting in two wins - 6 for 1 against.

This move in retaining Bowyer is one of the better choices made by our bungling owners as I'm sure this will create stability for the foreseeable future which we all crave for - isn't it ?

Far to many folk's have their own agenda over these matters down at the good ship Ewood rather than seeing what is practical, in my estimation ?

I would never question the loyalty or the intrinsic link of any supporter for our beloved, but I would question the wisdom of some ?

Neither do I profess to have the correct solution in my opinion, but at the heart of the matter is seeing something that is worth embracing for the most important element in all of this, and that is the B&W shirt adorned by a crest that supersedes all.

Happy New Year Ray Gunn, 8 ball Deluxe......

Stability is growing in my estimation now that Bowyer and Co are in place. The defining factor in this is if Bowyer can deal with the pressure that will come ? I believe he will for why would he change what is not broken ? We, as supporters can help him, along with the team, by unstinting support which in turn will slowly but surely have positive results right the way through the club. Whilst all of the politics goes on behind closed doors Bowyer and Co attempt the most important factor here - the team, and at this time all is going well. I believe their will be a blip, but not that which you point out regards Bowyer. Of course, I could be wrong, but I'm prepared to stick my neck out for what it's worth, and believe that Bowyer will not succumb to the nasty going on down at the good ship Ewood ?

For 90 minutes at this stage of BRFC's history we should hold back from haranguing all that besets our club, although that said, I doubt that will be the case ?

The good folk's who support this club really need to widen their scope of just what it is to support a club ? I believe a section of Rovers supporters have only a fear and loathing for our club which represents or manifests itself thus forth and to date ? Being positive seems to be a poisoned chalice and decrying seems to be the easiest way out so as not to look a fool ? We are all fools as regards supporting football once we accept that then on we go, in my opinion ?

The club is what I support regardless of the situation. For me that is what a football supporter does and accepts that we are going to get it in the backside from time to time. We are not immune to the perils of live as our history as shown in 138 years, but we march on (still downing the our bitter rivals Bunley) !!!!!!

I am watching closely the events as most profess to do on pages such as these, but like Bowyer and Co I ain't interested in what is the projected crisis down at Ewood because I want to prepare for better times and shat in the face of it all for the most important element in all of this: Blackburn Rovers Football Club and the team that represents it followed by it's supporter.

I want change and I will do all I can as a long time supporter of this club with positive thinking even with all this supposed blithe blowing around the place.

like many I have been taken to the cleaners with this shambles over the past 2 years, but the candle still burns bright for this football club and no-one will take that away regardless of the circumstances alas i cannot say that of some fellow supporters !

Just a thought ?

With our current squad we were always going to beat Barnsley away and with Forest employing the negative Big Eck and our tails up our chances of beating Forest were at home were 50-50 which fortunately we did.
What we then needed was a good managerial appointment to come in a sort out our squad and strengthen in area's we need.
The current caretaker manager has done a good job but I'm not getting carried away.
It's a long season and with no "boss" in charge of this transfer window we may see some crazy Shebby signings or more worrying departures to more valued assets.

The problem is that Venky's come from a totally different culture and most certainly don't understand our culture any better than we understand theirs.

They don't, or didn't understand our passion for Rovers, that must have come as an incredible shock to them, especially when things started going wrong.

They won't react favourably to the bile and insults because they are not used to being questioned or threatened, so they will withdraw deeper, become even more insular.

But they won't give up because to do so would mean a huge loss of face, something their culture simply will not allow. That is almost certainly why it took so long to get rid of Kean, because he was appointed by them..

They didn't personally appoint Berg so sacking him wasn't a problem.

Know and understand your enemy, it's the only way to beat them.

I guess appointing Bowyer & McPhillips for the time being is an admission that they could have promoted from within in the first place and therefore saved the £1 million plus that they wasted on Berg.

It was obvious from the very start that Shebby was sent to increase the dwindling numbers and therefore increase revenue for the owners. He tried to say the right thing at the Blakeys meeting and was cheered when he said he oould sack Kean if he lost 3 games in a row and emphasised that he had the authority to do so.

These comments backfired on him and the owners, as this is the biggest reason Kean got paid out without the need to go to court. So far that was £1.2 million add to that the mistake Singh admitted he made appointing Berg £1 Million and Singhs own wages of £400,000 per year. Thats a grand total of £2.6 million that Singh has wasted so far.

If you consider a season ticket to cost £300 then he would need to bring in just sort of 9,000 extra fans to cover his cost. All in all with the ridicule Singh has brought on the club, the mistakes he has admitted to making and his overall Tomfoolery, he has proven to be one of the biggest mistakes in the history of BRFC.

I think the time is right for him to admit he is a clown and beg and plead for his job back as a pundit. He wasn't great at that, but at least he did less damage!

Any other time of the year this might be sensible but in the transfer window !! Also, they talk about bringing someone in with short term targets but surely anyone accepting that kind of deal would also require the opportunity to sort out the squad and bring in some of their own players - wouldn't they!

To do this when the squad needs strengthening is ridiculous but I think the number of interested candidates on 1 February is going to be very different than those on 3 January.

Andy - can you do some reporting and see if you can get us an answer on the logic here ?

I support that in any situation, and these back to back wins are worthy of positive support regardless of the supposed blithe blowing through the corridors of Ewood Park ? Bowyer as shat in the face of adversity such is his belief in the squad to go out and perform to the level and standard that they have been lauded for since our relegation. I go into Saturdays game with renewed optimism regardless of the opposition.The plight of the club is there for all to see, but out on the pitch at this time I would say it is worth seeing and supporting under the guy who as appeared to revive some dignity for our beleaguered club and, again I say, shatting in the face of adversity. Keep on keeping on Mr Bowyer and Co Common sense as prevailed here whether you loathe Venky and Co or not. Just a thought folk's ? Arte et labore
And what happens when Bowyer starts to lose games, what happens when the teams we play are actually competent at playing football? what then, will you still stand by your common sense ideals. Its obvious that when early February comes round we will hire someone and Bowyer through all his rights or wrongs will be one again demoted. If your backing Bowyer then great, nobody wants to say a bad word about him. Dont think for a second that Venkys will treat him with any respect after the end of the transfer window.
When Bowyer begins to lose games, as you put it - then the boo boys will be out in force again. It is facking simple - Why ? Because I know what Blackburn fans can be like seeing as I've followed, lived and breathed this facking place for nigh on 50 years following this club for 40 of them consistently. I will stand by my comments everyday of the week, and even discuss with one and all over them. I quite clearly state the 'wisdom of some' toward this current situation our club finds itself in nor do I profess to have the answers as most other posters do not either, but what I will say is this - the self perpetuating actions of some of our clubs supporters are doing untold damage to the club. Never mind that Venky and Co are the main culprits in this - allegedly - no other will damage the club more than US the supporter with this continued protest of what is deemed to be best for it ? We as supporters are never going to have our our way that is a simple fact, and this is highlighted by the 10,000 that have chosen to stay away because they cannot have their own way. Proof enough I would surmise ? Supporting your club takes balls, belief, dedication regardless of the situation. I didn't here folk bleeting at the Bill Fox era for instance when things were bleak - Why ? Because we knew our station, but always believing. Venky have made a sows ear out of buying our club and i have vented my spleen often enough, but never have I turned on my club as some supporters are quite clearly doing whether through a conscience state or an ignorance ? Blackburn Rovers Football Club loses games even under the greatest of managers, Bowyer will be no different the salvation from this is that Bowyer is a winner quite clearly proven up to date, and that is good enough added to a very important stability that could very well put our club back on a level footing for the future that WE all crave. It is about time US Rovers supporters begin the process of thought toward that instead of maligning the club with their own vision for the hatred of Venky. Their is only one loser in all of this: Blackburn Rovers Football Club. I won't turn on my club and should I see a glint of light that I see as worth supporting I will do that without booing or venting my spleen at the current situation. Why ? Because I am Blackburn through and through. Bowyer and Co have shown me he understands the situation just as Berg(unfortunately he lost his job) did and shat in the face of adversity just as I will for our club no matter what the circumstances. If we the supporter don't remain loyal shouting from the rooftops that things are improving then we can all go home and let this projected episode become what a lot of supporters believe it is ? I know Blackburn supporters from the road sweeper to the chattering class in the Walker stand, and we can bemoan like no other regards this football club, but if we want a football club worth supporting then the supporter had better make stark choices and grow some facking balls and cease bleeting at these owners. They will succeed or fail all on their own ? The bottom line is 'where was you when the shat hit the fan ? I was out on the terraces supporting the B&W shirt followed by the crest that will be adorned for time infinite, but not if the Venky antagonists have their way.

I rest my case. Regards Arte et labore
Well said, it's about time the moaning stopped and support started. Venky's own the club whether we like it or not, and at this point in time without them we would be fccked. So support the team, support the manager and support the current owners and advisor Shebby (who has proved 100% better than the last advisor). Get back to Ewood and drive the team onward and upwards.

Berg was sacked after 57 games after just 1 win against Peterborough who at the time were rock bottom - Bowyer won against Barnsley who were rock bottom and the Forest side that was fielded was not the same squad that had been winning matches, Rochina's goal was an absolute fluke and our other two due to poor defending and a lucky shot from Kaz. Yet as they say a goal is a goal and 3 points is 3 points which is great, however if we came across a team like Palace again and how they performed in our last game, Bowyer or not/Team spirit or not we are simply not good enough. I like Bowyer and if he has changed the team then its about time, all i was saying is that after this torrid few years i do not foresee this being as open and closed as that. I also believe that when he does start to lose games his head will be on the line just like the rest of them reserve manager or not. As for the **** hitting the fan comment, your not alone in where you were - thousands of us were and continue to be there as well. I just dont want to see what happened to Portsmouth happen to my club because of incompetent owners.

Bowyer as shat in the face of adversity such is his belief in the squad to go out and perform to the level and standard that they have been lauded for since our relegation. I go into Saturdays game with renewed optimism regardless of the opposition.The plight of the club is there for all to see, but out on the pitch at this time I would say it is worth seeing and supporting under the guy who as appeared to revive some dignity for our beleaguered club and, again I say, shatting in the face of adversity. Keep on keeping on Mr Bowyer and Co Common sense as prevailed here whether you loathe Venky and Co or not. Just a thought folk's ? Arte et labore[/p][/quote]And what happens when Bowyer starts to lose games, what happens when the teams we play are actually competent at playing football? what then, will you still stand by your common sense ideals. Its obvious that when early February comes round we will hire someone and Bowyer through all his rights or wrongs will be one again demoted. If your backing Bowyer then great, nobody wants to say a bad word about him. Dont think for a second that Venkys will treat him with any respect after the end of the transfer window.[/p][/quote]When Bowyer begins to lose games, as you put it - then the boo boys will be out in force again. It is facking simple - Why ? Because I know what Blackburn fans can be like seeing as I've followed, lived and breathed this facking place for nigh on 50 years following this club for 40 of them consistently. I will stand by my comments everyday of the week, and even discuss with one and all over them. I quite clearly state the 'wisdom of some' toward this current situation our club finds itself in nor do I profess to have the answers as most other posters do not either, but what I will say is this - the self perpetuating actions of some of our clubs supporters are doing untold damage to the club. Never mind that Venky and Co are the main culprits in this - allegedly - no other will damage the club more than US the supporter with this continued protest of what is deemed to be best for it ? We as supporters are never going to have our our way that is a simple fact, and this is highlighted by the 10,000 that have chosen to stay away because they cannot have their own way. Proof enough I would surmise ? Supporting your club takes balls, belief, dedication regardless of the situation. I didn't here folk bleeting at the Bill Fox era for instance when things were bleak - Why ? Because we knew our station, but always believing. Venky have made a sows ear out of buying our club and i have vented my spleen often enough, but never have I turned on my club as some supporters are quite clearly doing whether through a conscience state or an ignorance ? Blackburn Rovers Football Club loses games even under the greatest of managers, Bowyer will be no different the salvation from this is that Bowyer is a winner quite clearly proven up to date, and that is good enough added to a very important stability that could very well put our club back on a level footing for the future that WE all crave. It is about time US Rovers supporters begin the process of thought toward that instead of maligning the club with their own vision for the hatred of Venky. Their is only one loser in all of this: Blackburn Rovers Football Club. I won't turn on my club and should I see a glint of light that I see as worth supporting I will do that without booing or venting my spleen at the current situation. Why ? Because I am Blackburn through and through. Bowyer and Co have shown me he understands the situation just as Berg(unfortunately he lost his job) did and shat in the face of adversity just as I will for our club no matter what the circumstances. If we the supporter don't remain loyal shouting from the rooftops that things are improving then we can all go home and let this projected episode become what a lot of supporters believe it is ? I know Blackburn supporters from the road sweeper to the chattering class in the Walker stand, and we can bemoan like no other regards this football club, but if we want a football club worth supporting then the supporter had better make stark choices and grow some facking balls and cease bleeting at these owners. They will succeed or fail all on their own ? The bottom line is 'where was you when the shat hit the fan ? I was out on the terraces supporting the B&W shirt followed by the crest that will be adorned for time infinite, but not if the Venky antagonists have their way. I know of one person who is making inroads with dialogue towards finding a settlement that besieges our club, and from his previous dealings with the club he came out a winner followed by every single person that walks onto Ewood Park. I rest my case. Regards Arte et labore[/p][/quote]Berg was sacked after 57 games after just 1 win against Peterborough who at the time were rock bottom - Bowyer won against Barnsley who were rock bottom and the Forest side that was fielded was not the same squad that had been winning matches, Rochina's goal was an absolute fluke and our other two due to poor defending and a lucky shot from Kaz. Yet as they say a goal is a goal and 3 points is 3 points which is great, however if we came across a team like Palace again and how they performed in our last game, Bowyer or not/Team spirit or not we are simply not good enough. I like Bowyer and if he has changed the team then its about time, all i was saying is that after this torrid few years i do not foresee this being as open and closed as that. I also believe that when he does start to lose games his head will be on the line just like the rest of them reserve manager or not. As for the **** hitting the fan comment, your not alone in where you were - thousands of us were and continue to be there as well. I just dont want to see what happened to Portsmouth happen to my club because of incompetent owners. blazerafe

I believe that Gary Bowyer should be given a go to be fair and given what Singh said last night, I think it would be a problem getting anyone in for six months to see how he goes.

I really hope Bowyer does cut the mustard, but one man worth taking a punt on, if he doesn't would be Mickey Melon.

He got sacked from Fleetwood, despiet getting them 3 promotions in 4 seasons and I believe he was sacked dut to a fall out with the owner of the club, Andy Pilley. The fall out was over him not being allowed to talk to Blackpool over their vacancy.

I not saying he would be ideal, but if anyone is likely to accept a temporary contract and have a chance of success, he could be the one.

I was just about coming round to the idea of a 6 month manager after last night's performance on the radio. Might have been a good idea to keep it short term rather than squander a fortune on another Berg style appointment. Now I've got the feeling that the intention from the word go was to have a 'temporary' arrangement throughout January so that Singh could involve himself in transfer activity without resistance. Peculiar how Berg was ditched before the window opened and a new manager won't be here until it has shut.

A win or two from the next 4 games and it will be Bowyer's job. Cannot believe that the club are suggesting that they take 5 weeks to appoint a manager on a 6 month contract! They must think we are stupid.

Just for a moment at the end of the game against Forest I was happy with things. A comfortable win, good goals, 6 points from 2 games, healthier crowd at Ewood and the chance of bringing in a manager to push us on over the rest of the season. Well done Venky's, you've done it again and spoiled things.
Don't agree that they spoiled things again on this - they have made a decent 'short term' decision and have given themselves some breathing space to look for the right managerial appointment. Full marks to Gary Bowyer for what he has done already and of course for agreeing to do this important temporary role. Who knows what the end of the month will bring as predicting what this lot will do almost impossible. I would actually prefer that we do NOT have any more 'names' thrown into the ring right now and that the first time we all know who the new manager is going to be, will be on the day they actually announce it.

I'm sure if there are any shortfalls in the playing staff, they will be highlighted and dealt with during the window. Thanks Gary and Terry.
Common sense prevails. Those questioning Bowyer and Co need to give their head a shake ! Our club desperately needs stability if not for the long term with this, but the absolute here and now. Venky have got this right for once advised by, well, let us say results, and are we not in a results based business ? The astute, proven manager we all crave for is a dead duck in the water for various reasons that are well and truly highlighted on pages such as these. I wish for nothing more than BRFC performing to a standard that I have become accustomed to, and that being competitive - whether that is a success or failure is open to the 90 minutes of play ? Bowyer will have his limits just as any manager who comes in would, but Bowyer has grabbed this situation by the scruff of the neck installed the belief and desire for these players to perform to the best of their training abilities resulting in two wins - 6 for 1 against. This move in retaining Bowyer is one of the better choices made by our bungling owners as I'm sure this will create stability for the foreseeable future which we all crave for - isn't it ? Far to many folk's have their own agenda over these matters down at the good ship Ewood rather than seeing what is practical, in my estimation ? I would never question the loyalty or the intrinsic link of any supporter for our beloved, but I would question the wisdom of some ? Neither do I profess to have the correct solution in my opinion, but at the heart of the matter is seeing something that is worth embracing for the most important element in all of this, and that is the B&W shirt adorned by a crest that supersedes all. I support that in any situation, and these back to back wins are worthy of positive support regardless of the supposed blithe blowing through the corridors of Ewood Park ? Bowyer as shat in the face of adversity such is his belief in the squad to go out and perform to the level and standard that they have been lauded for since our relegation. I go into Saturdays game with renewed optimism regardless of the opposition.The plight of the club is there for all to see, but out on the pitch at this time I would say it is worth seeing and supporting under the guy who as appeared to revive some dignity for our beleaguered club and, again I say, shatting in the face of adversity. Keep on keeping on Mr Bowyer and Co Common sense as prevailed here whether you loathe Venky and Co or not. Just a thought folk's ? Arte et labore
And what happens when Bowyer starts to lose games, what happens when the teams we play are actually competent at playing football? what then, will you still stand by your common sense ideals. Its obvious that when early February comes round we will hire someone and Bowyer through all his rights or wrongs will be one again demoted. If your backing Bowyer then great, nobody wants to say a bad word about him. Dont think for a second that Venkys will treat him with any respect after the end of the transfer window.
When Bowyer begins to lose games, as you put it - then the boo boys will be out in force again. It is facking simple - Why ? Because I know what Blackburn fans can be like seeing as I've followed, lived and breathed this facking place for nigh on 50 years following this club for 40 of them consistently. I will stand by my comments everyday of the week, and even discuss with one and all over them. I quite clearly state the 'wisdom of some' toward this current situation our club finds itself in nor do I profess to have the answers as most other posters do not either, but what I will say is this - the self perpetuating actions of some of our clubs supporters are doing untold damage to the club. Never mind that Venky and Co are the main culprits in this - allegedly - no other will damage the club more than US the supporter with this continued protest of what is deemed to be best for it ? We as supporters are never going to have our our way that is a simple fact, and this is highlighted by the 10,000 that have chosen to stay away because they cannot have their own way. Proof enough I would surmise ? Supporting your club takes balls, belief, dedication regardless of the situation. I didn't here folk bleeting at the Bill Fox era for instance when things were bleak - Why ? Because we knew our station, but always believing. Venky have made a sows ear out of buying our club and i have vented my spleen often enough, but never have I turned on my club as some supporters are quite clearly doing whether through a conscience state or an ignorance ? Blackburn Rovers Football Club loses games even under the greatest of managers, Bowyer will be no different the salvation from this is that Bowyer is a winner quite clearly proven up to date, and that is good enough added to a very important stability that could very well put our club back on a level footing for the future that WE all crave. It is about time US Rovers supporters begin the process of thought toward that instead of maligning the club with their own vision for the hatred of Venky. Their is only one loser in all of this: Blackburn Rovers Football Club. I won't turn on my club and should I see a glint of light that I see as worth supporting I will do that without booing or venting my spleen at the current situation. Why ? Because I am Blackburn through and through. Bowyer and Co have shown me he understands the situation just as Berg(unfortunately he lost his job) did and shat in the face of adversity just as I will for our club no matter what the circumstances. If we the supporter don't remain loyal shouting from the rooftops that things are improving then we can all go home and let this projected episode become what a lot of supporters believe it is ? I know Blackburn supporters from the road sweeper to the chattering class in the Walker stand, and we can bemoan like no other regards this football club, but if we want a football club worth supporting then the supporter had better make stark choices and grow some facking balls and cease bleeting at these owners. They will succeed or fail all on their own ? The bottom line is 'where was you when the shat hit the fan ? I was out on the terraces supporting the B&W shirt followed by the crest that will be adorned for time infinite, but not if the Venky antagonists have their way. I know of one person who is making inroads with dialogue towards finding a settlement that besieges our club, and from his previous dealings with the club he came out a winner followed by every single person that walks onto Ewood Park.

I'm with you on this RR. Time to move on and look forward..
All I am looking for is good faith. If we drop down the league I can accept that no problem. And to be honest, did we not all know that was bound to happen post Jack?
It is just that from the outset the Venkys have seemed to be a bunch of phonies without that good faith.

All the above posts are accurate. No-one has criticised the two lads only the people above them. And as for being a doom monger,do you expect everybody to praise this bunch of shysters! I will criticise until they day they have all left.
...and then you will more than likely criticise whoever else comes in, along with the weather, the shade of blue the new kit is, the price of pies on the concourse, the new bus time table to and from the ground. There will always be something for the doom and gloom brigade along with the no brain boo boys to twist and complain about.

What is required is a management team that understands Blackburn Rovers FC, the fans (thats the real fans getting behind the side) and has the respect of the players. We already have the perfect candidates on board, Gary & Terry. Real football men who have been at the club through thick and thin for many years.

Who has said that the current caretaker managers will not have a say in any possible transfers? Have I missed a club statement saying so? It is more than likely Gary Bowyer who is offered the post until the end of the season which makes total sense if he is doing a decent job. Doing a decent job does not mean winning every game 3-0 or signing the next Alan Shearer. Doing a good job is providing decent displays and making us hard to beat again, keeping the players fit and gradually building on what we've got.

Nobody is asking anybody to praise the owners, all the real fans want is for everybody to pull together and support the team and the manager. It's not too much to ask is it?

Berg was sacked after 57 games after just 1 win against Peterborough who at the time were rock bottom - Bowyer won against Barnsley who were rock bottom and the Forest side that was fielded was not the same squad that had been winning matches, Rochina's goal was an absolute fluke and our other two due to poor defending and a lucky shot from Kaz. Yet as they say a goal is a goal and 3 points is 3 points which is great, however if we came across a team like Palace again and how they performed in our last game, Bowyer or not/Team spirit or not we are simply not good enough. I like Bowyer and if he has changed the team then its about time, all i was saying is that after this torrid few years i do not foresee this being as open and closed as that. I also believe that when he does start to lose games his head will be on the line just like the rest of them reserve manager or not. As for the **** hitting the fan comment, your not alone in where you were - thousands of us were and continue to be there as well. I just dont want to see what happened to Portsmouth happen to my club because of incompetent owners.
Hi Blazerafe - thanks for your reply and in no way am I having a go at you or any of my fellow supporters. I would never do that for your view is as valid as the next - rightly or wrongly ?

It is to be warranted your view considering the inane goings on down at the good ship Ewood, but I must beg to differ, if only for the last two games. This resurgence must begin somewhere and on the evidence of the Barnsley game, but unable to witness the Forest game(so I won't comment), I spotted something that encouraged me. I've done most away games this season, and Huddersfield was very nearly Barnsley only this time the tactics, belief were there. I believe that was a defining moment in Bergs tenure. had we won that game then I firmly believe things would have worked out differently for him ? The pressure on him was made more intense whereupon under Bowyer and Co a different pressure shows itself, in my opinion ? Strangely enough he doesn't have that pressure, but a pressure that he will thrive under for his remit is to prepare the team. He is on a winner he cannot lose thus, in my estimation the squad benefit no end which in turn US supporter enjoy the fruits of that. It's a kind of black comedy !

Under good leadership this squad of players, and against my earlier opinion some weeks ago over some not being ready for the rigors of the Championship through poor buy's, I believe this lot are good enough for this Championship and are more than capable of bouncing back - under good leadership. Bowyer and Co, from my perspective are providing that. When we lose next time , again in my opinion, my feelings will be that of disappointment but unlike these past few years. I just would not be so disrespectful toward Bowyer and Co other than to give him anything less than 100% genuine support. Anything other than that that, again in my estimation, would be disrespectful and tar him with the shambles down at Ewood when nothing could be further from the truth on evidence thus far ?

Our club will survive no matter what regardless of the incompetent owners you quite rightly criticise, but we are watching very closely doing what we can as supporters, but for me, the situation BRFC finds itself in under Bowyer and Co, for that which I've said above, deserves to be judged on it's current merits rather than ****-eyed view we've all had to endure these last 2 years ?

Like I say constantly to myself only one element in all this is suffering: Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

We as supporters must keep that pressure away from Bowyer and Co, in my mind, as he didn't generate it and most certainly doesn't deserve it at this point in time ?

Something will get the momentum going on the back of what is a positive amongst all the blithe - I believe the supporters have to believe what they are seeing in practical/objective terms rather than subjective ?

Pressure Drop.

I like Bowyer and if he has changed the team then its about time, all i was saying is that after this torrid few years i do not foresee this being as open and closed as that. I also believe that when he does start to lose games his head will be on the line just like the rest of them reserve manager or not. As for the **** hitting the fan comment, your not alone in where you were - thousands of us were and continue to be there as well. I just dont want to see what happened to Portsmouth happen to my club because of incompetent owners.[/p][/quote]Hi Blazerafe - thanks for your reply and in no way am I having a go at you or any of my fellow supporters. I would never do that for your view is as valid as the next - rightly or wrongly ? It is to be warranted your view considering the inane goings on down at the good ship Ewood, but I must beg to differ, if only for the last two games. This resurgence must begin somewhere and on the evidence of the Barnsley game, but unable to witness the Forest game(so I won't comment), I spotted something that encouraged me. I've done most away games this season, and Huddersfield was very nearly Barnsley only this time the tactics, belief were there. I believe that was a defining moment in Bergs tenure. had we won that game then I firmly believe things would have worked out differently for him ? The pressure on him was made more intense whereupon under Bowyer and Co a different pressure shows itself, in my opinion ? Strangely enough he doesn't have that pressure, but a pressure that he will thrive under for his remit is to prepare the team. He is on a winner he cannot lose thus, in my estimation the squad benefit no end which in turn US supporter enjoy the fruits of that. It's a kind of black comedy ! Under good leadership this squad of players, and against my earlier opinion some weeks ago over some not being ready for the rigors of the Championship through poor buy's, I believe this lot are good enough for this Championship and are more than capable of bouncing back - under good leadership. Bowyer and Co, from my perspective are providing that. When we lose next time , again in my opinion, my feelings will be that of disappointment but unlike these past few years. I just would not be so disrespectful toward Bowyer and Co other than to give him anything less than 100% genuine support. Anything other than that that, again in my estimation, would be disrespectful and tar him with the shambles down at Ewood when nothing could be further from the truth on evidence thus far ? Our club will survive no matter what regardless of the incompetent owners you quite rightly criticise, but we are watching very closely doing what we can as supporters, but for me, the situation BRFC finds itself in under Bowyer and Co, for that which I've said above, deserves to be judged on it's current merits rather than ****-eyed view we've all had to endure these last 2 years ? Like I say constantly to myself only one element in all this is suffering: Blackburn Rovers Football Club. We as supporters must keep that pressure away from Bowyer and Co, in my mind, as he didn't generate it and most certainly doesn't deserve it at this point in time ? Something will get the momentum going on the back of what is a positive amongst all the blithe - I believe the supporters have to believe what they are seeing in practical/objective terms rather than subjective ? Pressure Drop. Regards Arte et labore Road Runner Road Runner

Is it any wonder that there appears to be a lack of quality managers wanting the Rovers job at the moment after the abuse Steve Kean received.
Fired up by a handful of supporters with more time on their hands than the rest of us the whole country thinks Ewood is a powerkeg for any manager now.
Malicious rumour circulated via the internet is deemed to be gospel within the day to such extent that even the faithful start to believe the tripe that is spat from some peoples faces.
Instead of coming on here and other similar forums we should start to seek out these so called 'supporters' that have hidden agendas, and stop this internal cancer from eating away at our club once and for all. Local businessmen who think they can engineer running the club should concentrate on their own businesses in these troubled times.
With the right sort of support both in numbers and vocally we might attract the right sort of manager who will lead us up the league. Otherwise these nobodies, with their internet interviews and twitter accounts are going to ruin our club for a long while to come

This makes the 6 months contract for the new Manager sound silly as there will be only three months of the playing season left by the end of January. Why can't Shebby just say a short term contract initially and then negotiate the period with the applicant instead of coming out with a period that may not be practical. It was the same when he is telling everyone that he would have a new manager in by the end of new years day. Will he ever learn.He should leave the announcements to Derek Shaw.

Good luck to Gary B - just dont let Shebby interfere.

Do not think I will understand Venkys or their process in how they run the football club - in fact I am sure I am not alone in saying I am totally bored of the Politics surrounding Rovers which comes out of Ewood. Pity we could not put them all ona desert island and leave them there - so we can enjoy our football.

I did sense on Tuesday after an uncertain first half that belief was coming back into the squad and if thy can get another victory on Saturday and a result at Wolves then who knows.

I would like to see the squad strengthened - at the back Curtis Davies of Birmingham who are financially under pressure would be a good option assuming Givet leaves. If Robinson is to go we need an experienced goalkeeper on the books even if Jake Kean has an extended run. Midfield we need to find a box to box player if Etuhu is on the move as I would prefer Simon V as a right winger (backing up the fullback) although he can do the midfield role if he stays fit.

Come on Rovers nothing to loose go out and give it a go and lets make 2013 a success whoever is in charge

Quite simply, Shabby is a complete buffoon who never puts his brain in gear before opening his mouth. All you have to do is listen to him on any radio programme. The man is a complete embarrassment to BRFC, and he alone is completing the job that Venky's began. He is, or rather already has, made us the laughing stock of football. He has no qualifications whatsoever to be involved, but some people on here take positives from him - it beggars belief!

I'm all for being optimistic, but the appointment of GB, and I sincerely hope he succeeds, just smells as a front for the megalomaniac Shabby to continue playing football manager with a real club - unfortunately us.

The only problem with the six month contract is it will limit the number of candidates showing an interest.......Some would probably stick out for a longer deal rather than risk getting the push in a few weeks.

An obvious strategy by the Venkys to ensure they do not have to give the new manager any money to spend on players, or part of the plan to appoint Gary Bowyer eventually.

If this is part of the plan, can I strongly URGE SINGH and his LACKIES to sign an experienced central defender to replace SCOTT DANN, who is atrocious and needs to be dropped.
-
SCOTT DANN is the second coming of CHRISTIAN DIALLY, signed on BIG MONEY and ABSOLUTELY DEVOID of any DEFENSIVE QUALITIES other than being a big lump.

SINGH please ASK every Rovers fan you meet what they think of SCOTT DANN and you will see, we will be going NOWHERE in any LEAGUE with that SACK OF SH** within spitting distance of our first team. DANN is a fuc****LIABILITY, get RID NOW!!!!
Atleast if the new manager has a decent experienced CENTRAL DEFENDER we have a fighting chance of competing for the play offs, depending on our form between now and Jan 31st.

Yep so good, your manager wanted to go down a division! But then again who can blame him, we're a joke at the moment so what does that you? Obsessed with rovers, not won anything in recent history, about to sell Austin, you're in debt, you're in Yorkshire, you smash up your own town, your ground is a dump, gawthorpe is a dump, you're nothing and that's why you stalk the rovers pages you all time loser!
Eddie Howe for Rovers. Tempt him back - he is brilliant in League 1.
Well he couldn't wait to dump you turdies, that in itself makes him a more commendable choice than Kean.. Watching you cry as you leave Ewood with another failed attempt at ending your losing streak and realising its never happening WOULD be made all the more delicious if Howe was there to add to your misery..

I think you need some reading glasses I have just read it on the Rovers Web Site.
and on sky sports breaking news. I despair of some rovers fans. Wont believe a summarised version in a report but believe the assumed intentions of a bunch of shysters. Reading about Bowyer this morning (and I have absolutely nothing against him and do not blame him and agree that the candidates mentioned are not good enough) its like going back 2 years. A repeat of the process that followed Sams sacking. Kean was given a game, fans said give him a chance, then it went to christmas then end of year and well you know the rest. It all ended in tears, banners, protests and chickens on the pitch. Two words - money saving. It would be wonderful to think that Venkys had made that decision for the reasons a lot of you believe but if we havent all learned by now that they do not make decisions based on whats best for the club, there is no hope for us.
Bit of a difference there though mate, Bowyer has a track record of success at every level he has operated at. whereas when big Sam left and the first team coach went with him, Kean, who was first team cone placer at the time was promoted having no track record of success at any level. He could hand out a mean High Vis bibb and looked awsome at placing the tyres though.
So your comparison really isn't apples and apples its apples and doughnuts.
If Bowyer did lose the next three games it would only speed up the process of finding a new manager, if he wins the next three would you be bothered?
No you are right. I wouldnt argue different with you and Im not specifically bothered that Bowyer is being given till the end of the month (as long as they are still looking and aren't going to switch off until he loses two on the bounce). If we are struggling at the end of the month another two months could be wasted going over the same aimless process again. My point is that they are going down the same path as they did with Kean. Sack a manager, flounder, leave the next one still in a job with the reins. It's just confirmation that they haven't learned and aren't going to stand by their word and then Shebby's word about getting experienced. manager in. We would go out of business at work operating like that. They are utterly clueless and I suspect they are now totally apathetic about the club. I believe that if that squad of players put their heads together, and their hearts in it and pulled their socks up they could win two games without a manager.

A fair decision; I think that Gary Bowyer has started really well and certainly deserves a chance. I hope though that a deal may still be reached with Brad Friedel; I think he would be a huge asset to the club both on and off the field.

I think those who are reacting in a way they accuse others of i.e. moaning, jumping the gun, posting as though their opinions are correct, should just bear in mind that being a skeptical Rovers fan is to be expected after the manure we've had to suffer for two years. If you or Shebby cant understand why fans believe rumours and why they dont trust what they are told, its because we have had no factual communication and only ever had rumour. We have also been lied to which develops a sense of suspicion in people. It's like expecting the Christians to enter the Colosseum for a re-run with tigers instead of lions and expecting them to go for it.

Thats actually a ridiculous statement/criticism. Of course Venkys can win. If they had stuck by their initial pledges, appointed a proper replacement for Sam or taken decisive action to ensure we weren't relegated by replacing Kean! Some of you are as bad as the so-called doom mongers with your tut tutting. You talk about Venkys as though they are of the Jack Walker ilk.

Interesting that you say that its all changed in the last two years, Merlin - the irony is that there was just as much moaning when the club WAS well run and well managed under Williams et al and Big Sam. Hard to believe now, but there honestly was.

You really could not make this up if you tried. Venkys have made a succession of bad decisions for more than 2 years, due to a combination of ineptitude and greed within the club. What happens if we lose our next three games, will they sit it out, stubbornly awaiting for the 1 February, so that they can then appoint someone who will have no say on the playing staff situation until the summer?

Clearly the owners are intent on stripping out everything that they can get their greedy hand on. The only way to force them out is to cut off their income supply, by stop going to Ewood Park. All those people who continue to put their hard earned cash into the Venkys coffers will continue to endorse and support a regime that has been intent on harming the club from the first day.
Spot on!! I've been saying the same thing for nearly two years.

You mean there are people actively instigating another boycott trying to get Venkys to sell it on the cheap??? who would possibly come up with such a cunning plan??
BRAG ? BRIST? BREAST FED?
Do you mean there are some people who,as they could not afford the 40 million asking price they will now spread all sorts of guff to drive the price down to the pledged £30,000. Darker Forces indeed
Careful 8 ball, Glen Mullen has publicly declared that their solicitors will be after anyone making defamatory statements against his group.. Be afraid.. Be very afraid..

I think its this new BREAST FED supporters group, apparently they're always spitting out the dummy.. Next home game they have threatened to do the dirty nappy protest.
The group was formed after mamma Venky said that we are her baby and the baby felt neglected.

Thats actually a ridiculous statement/criticism. Of course Venkys can win. If they had stuck by their initial pledges, appointed a proper replacement for Sam or taken decisive action to ensure we weren't relegated by replacing Kean! Some of you are as bad as the so-called doom mongers with your tut tutting. You talk about Venkys as though they are of the Jack Walker ilk.
All very good points.....Some people have very short memories and seem to think this debacle is the fans fault with hardly a criticism of Venkys.

Hi 8 ball, I can see your point but I have a very long memory and I have never liked liars and cheats.
What frustrates me is that they don't seem to understand that cutting, cutting and cutting some more doesn't work in football.
Have they not learned anything from last season. Most clubs spend what they can to buy the best possible players they can afford. We have just been selling ours and have ended up second rate at best.
I am looking for just an inkling of ambition from Venkys but there's nothing on the horizon that I can see.

I know what you're saying and I'm not trying to discount everthing thats gone on and it does hurt, a lot, but I am willing to give Bowyer and co a bit of slack, after all they have been sh@t on too so its not their fault. Venkys have been a disaster so far, but maybe, with our backing the team can start performing, I'm not saying its going to be a success because success for venkys for me will be if we finish higher than before they came in. That is success plain and simple. But we have to start cutting the lads some slack and getting behind them or it could go the other way, which is not what any of us wants.

How much more bullsh!t are us Rovers fans expected to swallow from Shebby and co.?????
A few days ago Shebby says an appointment hoping to be made after the Notts Forest match on New Years Day!!!
Then we make a signing in King, don't get me wrong he's done OK but not exactly been pulling up trees, and may or may not be part of a new managers plans.
Now it's a case of no appointment to be made until early Feb and only a six month contract at that and a performance related target, that after the transfer window has closed and only three and a half months of season remaining.
So Shebby expects another new man to come in with another mans players again, thats if we not already sold them on.
Oh and lets not forget we have no training staff left either.
A question for Shebby then, who in their right mind would ever consider applying for a job to work under these circumstances???

I know what you're saying and I'm not trying to discount everthing thats gone on and it does hurt, a lot, but I am willing to give Bowyer and co a bit of slack, after all they have been sh@t on too so its not their fault. Venkys have been a disaster so far, but maybe, with our backing the team can start performing, I'm not saying its going to be a success because success for venkys for me will be if we finish higher than before they came in. That is success plain and simple. But we have to start cutting the lads some slack and getting behind them or it could go the other way, which is not what any of us wants.
I agree, I have nothing against Bowyer and I was the first to say the other day that the decision by Venkys not to upset the apple cart after the two wins was the most sensible thing I have heard them say. But to hear that we're not going into the market this Jan when the team are exceptionally weak in certain positions is unbelievable. I think we all know the defence and midfield need strengthening but with King signed and Best to come back we will be OK up front.
I'll still be there but I'm so frustrated and am not enjoying things at the moment

The PL is the Golden Goose, just by getting promoted and relegated clubs pick up in the region of £50 million plus parachute payments, just for one season. That would offset any losses. Venky's, like them or not, and I don't like them one single iota, are not the idiots continually portrayed on here, they are multi millionaires looking to promote and expand their brand.

The problem is that Venky's come from a totally different culture and most certainly don't understand our culture any better than we understand theirs. They don't, or didn't understand our passion for Rovers, that must have come as an incredible shock to them, especially when things started going wrong. They won't react favourably to the bile and insults because they are not used to being questioned or threatened, so they will withdraw deeper, become even more insular. But they won't give up because to do so would mean a huge loss of face, something their culture simply will not allow. That is almost certainly why it took so long to get rid of Kean, because he was appointed by them.. They didn't personally appoint Berg so sacking him wasn't a problem. Know and understand your enemy, it's the only way to beat them.
" self made multi millionaires"?

FYI they inherited the company.

I think we are all frustrated at the mo, granted I would have liked a more combative midfielder and a proper right winger and another centre back, but I feel in order to get those key players in, we will see more leaving first like Givet and Robinson plus other squad members who are nowhere near. Kean and shebby have bought some that may never don the kit at all. I mean I'm as good as Myles anderson and Bradley orr wasn't much better but for me you can add ribero and etuhu to that list. Lets see if Bowyer and co can change it round after all, Mark atkins wasn;t great until King Kenny had molded him a bit and sherwood was rubbish in this division as well, wanted too much time on the ball.

I think most of us know which players we would like see move on at BRFC.

But who do we want in playing....!!

Ok, I think we should make recomendations to BRFC as we're football fans and we see or hear of players doing well. I'm sure we know a player or two out there in the Football league who in their opinion good be a good player for BRFC.

Lets start pointing out the players in the lower leagues who could be good signings for Rovers.
Tony McMahon Shfld utd
Andrew Haliday Midbrgh

who is .......Tony McMahon...??

if we need a good young defender who is tough and has ability then maybe you should consider Tony McMahon who is at Sheffield utd but ex Middbrg.

have a look...!!
I think we should go for him
hes a full back, strong, tough and has scored goals

Andrew haliday
tough strong and young

Then we make a signing in King, don't get me wrong he's done OK but not exactly been pulling up trees, and may or may not be part of a new managers plans.
Now it's a case of no appointment to be made until early Feb and only a six month contract at that and a performance related target, that after the transfer window has closed and only three and a half months of season remaining.
So Shebby expects another new man to come in with another mans players again, thats if we not already sold them on.
Oh and lets not forget we have no training staff left either.
A question for Shebby then, who in their right mind would ever consider applying for a job to work under these circumstances???
You don't have to swallow, try spitting it out for a change, much safer.

if we need a good young defender who is tough and has ability then maybe you should consider Tony McMahon who is at Sheffield utd but ex Middbrg.

I think we should go for him
hes a full back, strong, tough and has scored goals

Andrew haliday
tough strong and young


take a look and let us all know”
I think we have enough lower league standard players at Ewood thank you. That is part of the problem - and definitely not the solution. Are you their agent by any chance?

BRFC

An absolute F@cking shambles, forget theory's just look at the facts,

Both these lads will try the hardest of that I am sure until a manager is found, the one that was signing on New Years Day has got lost!!

The new manager comes in at the end of January and cannot buy any players so what had changed at BRFC

Nothing absolutely nothing, Venkys will not have spent the promised 5 million per transfer window yet again.

Venkys you are a disgrace as owners of BRFC, IMO you are assett strippers at best.

Shebby you sir are a joke/puppett of the Venkys, you have no idea how to run a football club, you also would not know the truth if it stared you in the face,

All of you just get out of BRFC NOW.

Are Venky's suffering because you stay away?

Do they know you exist?.....sorry but they don't.

Not being nasty but the only person suffering is you, because you actually want to go to Ewood but your stubborn pride won't allow it.

So please carry on going to away games and give your hard earned to our opponents,

In the great scheme of things Venky's, Shebby and the rest are irrelevant, you, like me are either a Rovers supporter or not, that's all that matters through thick and thin.

And our team needs us down at Ewood.

Must try to add up how many games I have been to since 1972, rough calculation about 1500 and that's just the home games.

And chicken farmers, clowns and doomsayers are not going to stop me going, already got my tickets for Saturday and looking forward to it.

We are yet to find out if this transfer policy is ss's personal decision, if it is the venkys then they should say so publically, instead of hiding behind ss, if funds are not available then fair enough, i can understand that, what doesnt make sense is how is that stopping rovers from wheeling and dealing, allow the manager raise funds for new players. Maybe thats why they delayed appointing a new manager, ss would deny them full control on transfers.

I really do think that Venkys want to get us back into the Premiere League but by spending as little or no money as possible. Having listened to Kazs interview on the way home from the game on Tuesday it sounds as though the players have a lot of respect for Gary Bowyer and having watched the performance it seems like this is a man they want to play for. We have got ourselves a good goalkeeper now who is also very vocal which is something I don't feel Robbo was, we have also got Leon Best coming back to the team soon so once a few of the dead legs have been offloaded why cant we improve and get back where we belong!!
Let's get behind the team and new temporary manager and show them how proud we are of our beloved club.
We have to be positive.....

Because they are not as stupid as painted on here.

The majority of fans appear to want Mark Hughes back, I do, but his "people" have made it very clear that he isn't even remotely interested.

That basically means that any appointment made will be 2nd, 3rd or even worse choice in the eyes of the fans, and the doomsayers amongst the fans will be looking for the first error, or defeat to start their tirades again.

The PL is the Golden Goose, just by getting promoted and relegated clubs pick up in the region of £50 million plus parachute payments, just for one season. That would offset any losses. Venky's, like them or not, and I don't like them one single iota, are not the idiots continually portrayed on here, they are multi millionaires looking to promote and expand their brand. The only way to do that is in the PL. How many people who completely deride and insult them on here are self made multi millionaires? The problem is that Venky's come from a totally different culture and most certainly don't understand our culture any better than we understand theirs. They don't, or didn't understand our passion for Rovers, that must have come as an incredible shock to them, especially when things started going wrong. They won't react favourably to the bile and insults because they are not used to being questioned or threatened, so they will withdraw deeper, become even more insular. But they won't give up because to do so would mean a huge loss of face, something their culture simply will not allow. That is almost certainly why it took so long to get rid of Kean, because he was appointed by them.. They didn't personally appoint Berg so sacking him wasn't a problem. Know and understand your enemy, it's the only way to beat them.
" self made multi millionaires"? FYI they inherited the company.
Point totally missed.
Just one little point, that's all.

They may be successful in their own industry but that doesn't mean they know how to run a business in another totally unrelated one. In terms of running a football club it is fair comment to call them stupid. It kind of covers naive, inept and, to a lesser degree, irresponsible.

Thought the rest was a touch patronising to be honest.

Lets start pointing out the players in the lower leagues who could be good signings for Rovers.
Tony McMahon Shfld utd
Andrew Haliday Midbrgh

if we need a good young defender who is tough and has ability then maybe you should consider Tony McMahon who is at Sheffield utd but ex Middbrg.

hes a full back, strong, tough and has scored goals
